Verona is the
top shore excursion
destination beyond Venice

Popular attractions:

Roman Arena

An ancient colosseum that's in remarkably good condition.

Juliet's balcony

Don't believe guides who say it's the real one where Romeo wooed Juliet. How could anyone know? Not only is Shakespeare's play fictional, the Bard never traveled to Verona.
